Industry’s Best Pneumatic Framing Nailers by Mallory Kramer

For many craftsmen, a pneumatic framing nailer is one of the greatest tools in the world. Making quick work of jobs that can take what feels like forever, and doing it with professional strength and precision, these nailers are an irreplaceable asset. If you’re in the market for one of the best framing nailers in the pneumatic world, well, you’re in luck. The following is a compiled, compacted set of reviews of the best framing nailers, and their prices, on the market today.

Hitachi’s NR83A2 framing nailer is one of the most high-quality, high-performance pneumatic framers on the market today. Weighing only 7.9 lbs the tool is clearly lightweight and the tool is extremely well balanced for the most comfortable operation and maneuverability. The framer has a tool-less depth adjustment allowing craftsmen to choose their depth of drive, and with an open nose design, extracting a jammed nail is hardly a hassle. The framer also features selective actuation, a favorite feature of most users, which allow craftsmen to simply transition from single actuation to contact actuation for the greatest versatility through a variety of applications. The tool is strong, fast, and versatile, and because it’s also so lightweight and well-balanced, continuous work and awkward applications are far less strenuous. Ultimately, the NR83A2 is a seriously tough framer built for durability on the jobsite and for reliability through the most heavy-duty applications. Lastly,pricing from about 0 – 0, Hitachi’s framer is a bit spendy, but is worth every penny. (Note: This tool is also available as a sequential trigger gun (NR83A2S) for just about 0.)

On another hand, Porter-Cable’s FR350A 3-1/2″ roundhead framing nailer is one of the more heavy-duty pneumatic framing tools on the market today. With the power to drive nails up to 3-1/2″ x 131″ into engineered lumber, the tool has intense power. The framer’s compact body design contributes to its well-balance and overall smooth style while an internal piston catch mechanism ensures each shot is consistently powerful. A selectable trigger transitions modes between restrictive or contact actuation mode, and with a tool-free adjustable depth-of-drive, craftsmen have complete control over the tool’s performance. The tool is simple to reload, and a nail lockout mechanism alerts you when its time to reload your tool. Keeping your materials protected during work, the framer also has a (tool-free, adjustable) exhaust and a (removable) non-marring nose tip, and also having on-tool storage, the FR350AR is endlessly convenient. Ranging in price from about 0 – 0, the framer is abrilliant tool at a certainly reasonable price.

The FR350A is also available reconditioned (FR350AR) for just about 0. As a reconditioned tool, this nailer presents a truly superior value to craftsmen and builders. For those unfamiliar with recons, they are an extremely great value that bring craftsmen the highest-performance tools at a tiny fraction of regular cost. Reconditioned tools, for some minor cosmetic or technical defect, have been returned to the manufacturer. There, they undergo a series of stringent tests and retests and restoration processes before being re-released with an “R” trailing the model number. This little “R” (and potentially hundreds of dollars) is truly the only difference between a brand new tool and a recon. The value with reconditioned tools is a no-brainer; when they are available, buy them.

Like Hitachi and Porter-Cable, Senco is known for building some of the best pneumatic tools and nailers in the industry. With well-seasoned experience and superior craftsmanship, Senco is an steadfast contender in the world of pneumatics. Pricing from about 0 – 0, their SN902XP framing nailer is a brilliant and saucy little tool with 904 in/lbs of power in a compact, 7.3 lb package. This round head framer is also built with a innovated design that requires up to fifteen-percent less air than other comparable models, and still having the power to drive 2 – 3-1/4″ (round head plastic collated) framing nails with fast efficiency, the nailer perfectly unites precision power and lightweight convenience. The nailer also drives 2″-3-1/2″ smooth shank nails and 2″-3″ ring shank nails. The tool’s compact design also contributes to its ability to work in tight spaces in between studs and joists, and its overall balance and ease of operation. Additionally, the gun is easy to transition from rapid fire to sequential fire and is simple to load and unload for optimal convenience on the job. The SN902XP is ideal for a huge number of applications from framing, fencing and subfloors, to trusses and decking. It additionally has a patented TrueDrive magazine to prevent jamming and an adjustable depth of drive for unfailing precision with every shot. Like the above Porter-Cable nailer, Senco’s SN902XP is also available reconditioned (if you can find it) for about 0.

In the end and whatever your needs may be, one of these nailers is certain to be an ideal framer. With big power, acute precision, and the accountability of a time-honored manufacturer, these pneumatic framing nailers are the best of the best.

iffley asked What tools are a must have for home improvement?

I’m moving into my first home and want to purchase good quality tools that I’ll be using to build a new wall, tear down an old one, refinish some cabinets and things like that. What brand of tools should I go with and what specific tools do you suggest?

And got the following answer:

17 years as a GM mechanic taught me that Snap-on tools where worth the money when you used them daily, for the average home owner I would go with craftsmen, husky, etc. that have a lifetime warranty for sockets, wrenches, screwdrivers, etc. as for power tools the brands I like are Milwaukee, makita, dewalt, in that order just to name a few. never owned a bad Milwaukee tool, the others seem to make good and not so good lines so I buy the better (more expensive) ones.

now if your tearing down a wall and building a wall, you’ll need a good framers hammer. I’d go at least 20 oz. (26-32 is best but what ever your comfortable with) steel handle is my preference. Erwin I believe is the brand I own, but there are many good brands. a good pry bar or three big, med, small. a 12-14″ flat bar is a must, start there. A saws-all (hint: Milwaukee invented the saws-all) with a variety of blades, all purpose and a metal/hacksaw type, for starters. with those three tools you can tear down a house.

to build the wall you have the hammer. you’ll need a good circular saw, I love my makita! 99-110$ would own no other! A combination/framers blade, and a good finish blade (32-64 teeth) if your going to cut plywood or other finish wood. A framers/carpenters square, not a framing square unless your building stairs. A plumb bob and a good level (all levels need to be checked for accuracy, buying an expensive one doesn’t work here) check each bubble on a level/plumb surface and flip the level 180 deg. end to end and check again. you should get the same reading then turn it over and repeat. check all bubbles. nails I four building a single wall but an air nailer if you finishing a basement. drywall screw gun, utility knife, drywall square, 5″, 8″, 14″ taping knife, stainless steel mud pan, 18 volt cordless drill, corded drill-with 1/2″ chuck, mud mixer, orbital palm sander, belt sander, mini-rotary cutter “dremmel”, just to name a few.

17 years as GM mechanic, 7 years as building contractor, 3 years home inspector, have bought over $40,000 worth of personal tools. I’ve only scratched the surface so far, contact me if you want more specific info. I could go on for days……..my wife hates any tool sales place, but she loves my repairs!

Sarah asked What is the best nail gun out there?

I want to buy a gift for my man. He’s remodeling rooms, putting up crown molding, trim and casing, also installing door frames etc. I know he wants an angled one as it is easier to get in to corners. So now that you guys know, can you PLEASE help! brand? model? size? price? etc??

And got the following answer:

I get alot of use out of one of these->http://www.cpopowertools.com/dewalt-dc628k-18v-cordless-xrp-1-1-4-in—2-1-2-in-finish-nailer-kit/dewndc628k,default,pd.html?start=3&cgid=dewalt-nailers-and-staplers

Maria Gallercia asked What are the best tools’ manufacturer?

I heard it is either Snap on OR Craftsmen tools. Please let me know. Thank you in advance.

And got the following answer:

It depends on the type of tool. I have used all sorts of tools professionally and on home projects.

For hand tools (screwdriver, wrenches, ratchets and socket sets) both Snap On and Mac tools are the ones that professionals use — they are the strongest and most reliable. My ex had a car repair shop and he started out with Craftsman tools but they broke so often under the use they got all day long that he switched to the more expensive Snap On and Mac. They are also warranteed, but since they don’t break, you won’t always have to be exchanging them the way you do with Craftsman. In fact, my ex gave me a lot of his Craftsman tools when I started working as a construction electrician and I found that they even broke when I used them, so I started buying the Mac and Snap On as well. Snap On makes an ergonomic multi-tip ratcheting screwdriver that is one of my favorite tools in the world. I use it around the house nearly every week. However, you can only buy Snap On and Mac from an independent dealer, not in stores. You would have to find one locally and contact them or look for one of their sales vans.

For cutting tools (diagonal and linesman pliers and wire strippers) the best manufacturer is Klein. They also make a very good hacksaw frame, excellent tool belts and a metal hole sawing bit called a UniBit that is one of the coolest things going.

For slipjoint pliers the best brand is Channellock.

For cable cutting and hole sawing: Greenlee

For drill motors, for homeowner use, Dewalt makes excellent reasonably priced 120v and cordless units. I have used most of the brands while working in the field for various companies — some of the Makitas are good and Bosch and Hilti make the best hammer drills, in my opinion. For a reciprocating saw or a drywall screwgun, Milwaukee seems to hold up the best.

For pneumatic nailers: Bostitch

For super accurate levels of all sizes: Stabila

For retractable steel measuring tape: Stanley

Brands I would avoid are Craftsman (unless you like constantly exchanging broken ones) and Black and Decker — their power tools are garbage. I will say that Craftsman makes a decent fiberglass handled hammer — I’ve had mine for 30 years now.

Aaron asked want a cordless finish nailer, how difficult to use?

looking at a dewalt 18volt 16 gauge finish nailer is it easily used and how well do the nails hold and do they look acceptable for finish work, and how often do they have problems like jamming etc. thanks.

And got the following answer:

They are easy to use and usually convenient. All nail guns can jam. The cordless finish nailers work pretty well. The framing nailers are too slow, in my opinion, for any big job (sheathing especially).

If you think you might someday want a framing gun, roofing gun, brad nailer, pinner, stapler, air sander, drill, sprayer, etc, etc, I’d recommend a compressor. For about the same cost as that cordless gun, you could get the kit from Porter-Cable that has a pancake compressor, 16g finish, 18g brad, and narrow crown stapler. And then you have the option of adding many other tools.
